Seismic Survey Support


The SurveyWatch℠ service was developed to provide seismic survey operations and logistics managers the ability to place the survey party (as many as 4 vessels) in context with their metocean environment to aid in the team's ability to fly the streamers in a safe and efficient manner to reduce the potential in-fill rate.

Leveraging datasets from the various EddyWatch programs, our analysts provide region-specific ocean current updates that identify and describe oceanographic phenomena in and around the survey area.

The Asset Tracking service is incorporated into SurveyWatch: our GPS beacons and MetOcean Mapper provide the visualization framework to gauge survey pattern effectiveness with reference to all available metocean (wind, waves, and currents) and propriety client data (ADCP data, survey lines,etc.).

Clients of this service include: WesternGeco; PGS; CGG; Liquid Robotics.
